MANNINGTON — Senior citizens of Mannington will soon be able to enjoy the outdoors with a shady area to relax under.

Several volunteers have put many hours and hundreds of days into building a pavilion for the Mannington Senior Center. In fact, most of the volunteers are senior citizens themselves.

Larry Hayes, project manager, said from day one many senior citizens from the area have put hard work into providing a pavilion for the senior center.

The project started in May 2012.
